Its been many years since I had this seat and for some reason I cant find any other photos of it. I dont specifically recall if it was out of a 60 or 61 but it was a double door deluxe and had the plastic fluted handle. Would be neat to still have it. I guess thats a fairly rare seat then if its actually one year only.

Thanks for the info! Now, do any of you know where I can purchase the material to recover the '58 middle seat? I believe it's "soft green". I heard there was a company in Japan that sold a material that was close to the original in color. If I can find some material I also need to figure out how much to purchase. I'm going to recover front, middle and rear.


The had an ad on here for a while, I can't seem to find it right now. Also, you can just call Octavio down in Orange County, he makes the seat covers as well as Douglas Denlinger or of course lenny at west coast classics.

Hello, is it possible to identify the right year and color of these seats?
I would like to use them for my '64 kombi changing the cover.

More pictures might help, showing the legs underneath if possible. It looks like the middle seat does not have a grab handle on the top of the backrest.

Crazy indeed....55-58 door panels, with early barndoor armrests on the door panels, flat back seats. Now bonus points for the person who finds it!

There has been some discussion of 64 middle seat painted white in the past.

Here's a photo of a Mango Bus with a white-framed seat

Need help identifying these middle seats and what year range they fit...

#1 67+ with armrest hacked off but not sure if it's suitable for a split or bay only?
